Celeb GOSSIP » Diddy Settles Lawsuit Stemming From 1999 Shooting


After 12 long years, Sean "Diddy" Combs has finally settled a multi-million dollar lawsuit against him stemming from a shootout at a New York nightclub back in 1999.

The successful rapper/mogul, who was dating Jennifer Lopez at the time, was at a now-gone Times Square hot spot with former protégé Jamal "Shyne" Barrow when Barrow shot three clubgoers.

According to the New York Post, Diddy has now quietly settled all civil actions against him (as for Barrow, he served nine years in prison and was deported to his native Belize after release).

Although some confidentiality agreements have been signed, former Club New York owner Michael Bergos did not sign an agreement, and as has revealed that the most seriously injured victim, Natania Reuben, was paid $1.8 million - while the other two victims were paid $500,000 and $50,000.
